Artistic underwater photography can include use of color, texture, patterns, abstracts, and super macro. Developing an eye for artistic photography takes time. It helps to use other photographers' images for inspiration. Start off looking for pattern, texture and abstracts in the macro and supermacro world, zooming your camera lens out, or using your longest macro lens for a two-dimensional feeling. Try to fill the frame with your subject.
Circular Fisheye Lens
Shooting with a circular fisheye lens is a fun way to challenge your skills and add a little pizzazz to your portfolio. When used at its widest focal length, these lenses deliver a 180-degree view in every direction framed in a circle surrounded by a stark black border. It’s like capturing the ocean world in a little bubble. Underwater photography with this lens is always a crowd pleaser.
Far East of Russia
The nature of the Far East of Russia is very diverse and unique. Several years of travel to various regions of the Far East have united into a single project, revealing the underwater world of the Bering, Okhotsk and Japanese seas. Underwater expeditions were to Kamchatka, the Commander Islands and the Kurile Islands, Magadan, Primorye, Sakhalin and the Moneron Island.
Russia Fresh Water
Scuba diving doesn’t need to be relegated to salt water locales, there are freshwater sites around the world where you can see amazing things. While the salty depths provide vibrant, colorful vistas, freshwater diving offers unexpected sights and new perspectives.
Beautiful underwater photography, great use of light sources and shadows. Based on the colors that are used in the pictures, these photographs are ment to give a certain emotion and feeling when viewing.
Most shipwrecks are just that – they are wrecks. Once magnificent greyhounds of the oceans that have ingloriously run up on reefs, been ground down by waves and turned into undersea scrap yards. Or perhaps they were blown up by mines, torpedoed or dive bombed to the bottom. To make matters worse some wrecks continue to be pummeled, rolled, moved and demolished by waves driven deep by hurricanes. Ship wrecks are in essence wrecks first, ships second and the job of an underwater photographer is to make a “ship” picture out of a wreck. The philosophy is simple but the execution is extremely difficult.
